No Children Allowed

 http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/latino-kids-hit-back-donald-trump-hilarious-video-article-1.2424308?utm_content=bufferded46&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

It's not hilarious, it's disgusting. First of all an R rated video starring children is wildly inappropriate. Having children give someone the finger and speak obscene words in two languages is disgusting. Children should not be used in politics. 

Also, children should not be politicized. If the candidate wants a photo op of his wife and 2.5 children and dog that's fine. But children should not be used as the centerpiece of political messages. These kids have a right to their own opinions, when they grow up. 

 Political discourse should be above name calling and obscenity.  We used to be able to agree to disagree.  We used to teach our children to call people Mr. and Ma'am.  Now we apparently teach them to call people by obscene names; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
